TODAY IN LONDON, ThisWeek’s tipped events feature scissors-and-paper shapes by the great Henri Matisse, Oscar-winning actress Marion Cotillard, and a triad of tipped rock/alternative acts: PINS, Francis Lung, and Kagoule. And free pizza…
ART: Henri Matisse – The Cut Outs, Tate Modern, 17 Apr – 7 Sep (pictured)
The Tate M displays art giant Henri Matisse’s snip-and-paste series, which he began making in latter life once ill-health had prevented him from painting. This is the first time so large a number of his paper ‘gouaches découpées’, which include the famous ‘Blue Nudes’ and the large-scale ‘Snail’, have gone on show at the same time, in the same place. Details and tickets here.
